Briefly: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, David Strathairn, Bryan Cranston, Ken Watanabe and Juliette Binoche are all going to be fighting the granddaddy of all monsters, Godzilla, for director Gareth Edwards. Now they’ll have an Oscar-nominee along for the ride. Sally Hawkins, best known for her work in Happy-Go-Lucky as well as Never Let Me Go and Submarine, has just been cast as another scientist trying to survive what’s sure to be a massive monster attack.

In the next two years, Legendary Pictures is releasing two films in which giant monsters lay waste to cities. First up is Guillermo Del Toro‘s Pacific Rim, out July 12. In it, the humans have built giant robots called Jaegers to battle giant alien monsters called Kaiju. Then, in 2014, the company will release a new version of the film that brought the very concept of the kaiju to global popularity: Gareth Edwards‘ Godzilla, which is now in production.
As more and more studios think about team-up films such as The Avengers and Justice League, the possibility of some kind of new monster crossover seems obvious. Especially since it would hold true to the film history of Godzilla. There are no immediate plans for anything like this, but, Guillermo Del Toro loves the idea. Read his quote below. Read More »

Gareth Edwards‘ new Godzilla is just the latest of many sequels, spinoffs, and reboots that have been spawned since the monster first trampled Tokyo in 1954. We don’t know too much yet about how his take will differ from the others, but we now know of at least one element it’ll share with the original.
Akira Takarada, who starred in the very first Godzilla movie as diver Hideto Ogata, has just been confirmed for an appearance in the film. Read more after the jump.

The first video post from director Gareth Edwards, showing that his Godzilla was finally underway, was a big deal precisely because it let us know that the long-discussed film would be a reality. Now we’re getting a stream of additional photos and videos, but they’re not nearly as big a deal. Mostly because they don’t show the one thing everyone wants to see: Godzilla.
But if you want to see star Aaron Taylor-Johnson suited up in his military gear for the film, or just get a general look at the wreckage that we’ll see in the film, a couple of new set videos and some photos will give you a lot to think about. Gotta figure that missile the actors are standing around will factor into some plan to take down the giant lizard. Read More »

There’s still a whole lot we don’t know about Gareth Edwards‘ upcoming reboot of Godzilla, but now that production’s actually underway the filmmaker seems to be a little more forthcoming.
For starters, Edwards has just uploaded a “special message” from the shot. It’s really not much more than a brief hello, but it does offer our first look at the film’s set. We also have a new batch of set photos that show off some of the movie’s other locations. Check them out after the jump.
